Dr Semmelweis Tickets
Mark Rylance “triumphs” (Daily Telegraph) in Dr Semmelweis, an “urgent tale of scientific discovery” (Evening Standard), now playing at the Harold Pinter Theatre for a strictly limited season. This “beautifully bold production” (The Times) directed by Tom Morris (War Horse), follows maverick Hungarian doctor Ignaz Semmelweis – the man whose research could save many millions of mothers’ lives. But what good is a discovery that is ignored? Following a sold-out run at Bristol Old Vic, “it’s surely not to be missed” (Daily Mail), featuring live music by Adrian Sutton and original choreography by AntoniaFranceschi of Balanchine’s New York City Ballet.
